Winter birch

For some reason, this photograph of birch trees and a fence row on County Highway G in Door County, Wisconsin, appears to me more like a set for a movie or television production than an actual outdoor scene.

We had gone to Door County to capture some winter photos and were disappointed at the lack of snow. Fog crept in over the peninsula one night and below-freezing temperatures that followed coated the landscape in a thick layer of frost (that isn't snow on the ground). I was able to get a number of pleasing landscapes the next day before the frost melted off.

Birch trees are so ellegant. Nicely framed shot, with the stand of them on the left and the fence down the right.
